Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa Wins Pro Tour Hour of Devastation

Paulo fought his way through one of the most exciting Top 8s I’ve ever witnessed to snag the trophy in Kyoto. His Ramunap Red deck carried him through a Top 8 packed with red decks—save Sam Pardee and his G/B Constrictor build, who he defeated in a 5-game set in the finals. This marks PV’s 12th (!) Pro Tour Top 8, and his 2nd win. Congratulations to both Paulo and Sam for their incredible achievement.
